“Gun control is the idea that it’s better to see a woman dead in an alley, strangled
with her own pantyhose, than to see her with a gun in her hand.”—T.D. Melrose

Publisher’s Note

Dear Friends and Readers—

Please follow this link to an important article by Victor Davis Hanson that explains what’s going on better than anything else I’ve read so far. VDH believes that the life or death of Western Civilization is in the balance, and I agree, as you can see in my article in last week’s L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise. “The World Turned Upside-down”.

The United States Space Force
by L. Neil Smith
Many thoughtful observers believe that the most significant thing that Donald Trump has accomplished so far is his appointment of dozens of federal judges who share his philosophy of governance and I, amateur historian that I am, am inclined to agree with them—with one exception, that is, a little item that just might prove to be a thousand times, a million times, a billion times more important than anything else the Donald—or anybody else, for that matter—has ever done.

What if I Told You?
by Sarah A. Hoyt
I’ve found that just like in the old Soviet Union, we know more or less what the future will bring (at least a lot of us are beginning to be very afraid we know what the future will bring, while our adversaries are sure they know. And also wrong. And pushing us towards a precipice*.) It’s the past that keeps changing.

Scenario of National Bankruptcy
by Jim Carter
Doom and gloom is appearing with increased frequency in U.S. and global financial writings but specific details of economic catastrophe are never given. Let us speculate on what could happen.

Finding H. Beam Piper
by Jeff Fullerton
The quest began after a gourmet breakfast of bullfrog legs harvested this weekend during pond cleaning operations. I was off for the furnace place in Somerset County to get some rope gasket and caulking to replace the door seal on the outside furnace and then on to Altoona to find Fairview Cemetery and pay my respects to the late Science Fiction author H. Beam Piper who passed on this date in the 1960s. This will be my third attempt to find his final resting place in Fairview Cemetery which I recently figured out is right next door to the local UPMC hospital campus and just around the corner from the Taco Bell where I stopped to eat on my first attempt in 2016—only to discover that my wallet was missing somewhere along the way of a long trip by way of Musser’s Nursery in Indiana Pa (where I had left it at the checkout counter a few hours prior) and Zett’s Fish Hatchery in Drifting.

Will Hollywood Ever Learn?
by Sean Gangol
Recently, Hollywood released another Terminator reboot, this time with a cast that features mostly females in the main roles, while the men are either relegated to villainous characters or as in the case of Arnold Schwarzenegger to secondary roles. This is a prime example of how Hollywood seems to have a hard time learning from its mistakes. One of them being the idea of trying to use this mostly female cast to push a feminist agenda, which failed miserably with both the Ghostbusters and Ocean’s Eleven franchises. Then there is the very fact that Hollywood can’t seem let go of a franchise, even after it had been declared dead on two different occasions.

Use it or Loose it

Does it matter if you have a right if you don’t use it?

A Place Right Out of History
by Jim Davidson
Who wants to live in a free community? Quite a few people, actually. And, recently, I came across a very nice valley in Colorado that seems like a good place to begin.
